University of Texas at Austin = Junk Mail U.

I generally have a pretty good opinion of UT-Austin. I am not terribly happy, though, that since applying for – and declining – admission to the UT-A law school, I continue to get junk mail and the occasional phone call from Austin apartment complexes. To date, I’ve gotten several dozen pieces of mail and a few calls, plus a few contacts from non-housing industry Austin businesses. Why the university felt it should – or even, ethically, could – provide my address to area businesses is beyond me.
